Park Jae-beom, KBS’s “The Seasons”, unexpected identity
Park Jae-beom will be the sole MC of a music show for the first time since his debut.
KBS said on the 28th that “the new music talk show “THE SEASONS” will be launched in February next year. Singer Park Jae-beom will be the MC of the first season, he said. “The Seasons” is a music talk show-type program, and Park Jae-beom is known to be about to record for the first time.
It is the first time since his debut in 2008 that Park Jae-beom will be the MC of a music show. Park Jae-beom, who made his debut as a group 2PM, has been on a roll by solidifying his own color after leaving the group. He was the head of hip-hop labels AOMG and Hire Music, and in March, he also established entertainment company MoreVision. In addition, he has appeared in various entertainment shows and is gaining popularity across generations with his friendly charm as well as his popping sense of entertainment.
Expectations are high on what kind of unique charm he will show by working with various artists as a music talk show MC, who appeared as a mentor for competition programs such as Mnet’s “Show Me the Money” series and “High School Rapper.”
Above all, attention is also focused on whether “The Seasons” will continue its reputation as a KBS music talk show. KBS has established an unrivaled position by continuing late-night music talk shows for 30 years, starting with “Roh Young-sim’s Little Concert,” “Lee Moon-se Show,” “Lee So-ra’s Proposal,” “Yoon Do-hyun’s Love Letter,” “Lee Hana’s Peppermint,” and “Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook.”
Each program has been broadcast for a long time and received great love, so that it is considered one of the representative programs of many artists. It is a story of the history of the broadcasting industry, which has led to a music talk show craze that has created similar programs in other broadcasting companies. As a result, I am looking forward to seeing whether “The Seasons” will continue.
In particular, despite the longest broadcast of 11 years, attention is being paid to whether the previous film, “Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook,” will be able to raise the status of KBS music talk show again as it ended in disgrace in July due to Yoo Hee-yeol’s plagiarism controversy. From “Lee Moon-se Show” to “Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook,” there has never been a gap more than a week in introducing the new broadcast, but it has continued a gap of about five months due to the sudden end of “Sketchbook.” Attention is focusing on whether Park Jae-beom’s “The Seasons” will go beyond the gap to create a new trend.
